Skip to comments.Robbers Pose As Police: Men in SWAT Gear Terrorize Family (Dallas)
Posted on 11/10/2004 10:38:51 AM PST by Travis McGee
That's what six masked men dressed in black SWAT gear labeled "police" and armed with what appeared to be high-powered assault rifles and handguns yelled as they swarmed into a small welding business that also doubles as the home of Camilo Rodea, his wife and two small sons.
"They said, 'Give me the marijuana!' " Mr. Rodea said Tuesday afternoon, a few hours after the attempted robbery about 10:20 a.m. in the 9400 block of Bermuda Road in southeast Oak Cliff. "I said I didn't have any. "They said, 'If you love your son, you'll do it.' ... I didn't know what to think."
After smashing some windows during a frantic search, kicking Mr. Rodea to the ground and pointing guns at his children, ages 3 years and 2 weeks, the robbers came up empty-handed.
As they left, one frustrated attacker struck Mr. Rodea's wife, Maria Lopez, in the face with his rifle, opening a bloody gash above her right eye. Her wound was still bleeding hours later as she cradled their newborn in her arms.
The bandits then headed two doors down, where they found five construction workers fixing an empty house. They ordered all of them to the ground in the cramped back yard, pointed guns at their heads, demanded drugs, and then stole their wallets.
The bandits piled into a white van and a black Chevrolet Suburban and headed toward nearby Interstate 45. They remained at large Tuesday evening.

That's nothing. Just recently, we had an agent of the United Nations posing as a US Senator, running for the presidency. :)
I smile when thinking about how the REAL Police are going to handle these guys when they catch them.
Hopefully they will stumble across an armed Texas Special Forces soldier, home on leave.
Please don't let any of the usual disruptors hijack this new thread.
Don't take their bait; their goal is only to sidetrack the thread to oblivion.
The behavior of these thugs is not all that different from some police departments that we have been hearing about.
Odds are the real police will never catch the gang in their bogus uniforms.
A team like this will use police radio scanners, lookouts, etc.
At best, they'll find the bogus uniforms in the trunk of somebody's car, and he won't have any idea how they got there, and won't say one more word before lawyering up.
I'm calling the over/under on the cop fetishists showing up to be 20 posts.
Don't worry, Travis, it won't.
The last thread was a one time exercise to finally expose 'him' for what he truly is. Now when he starts up again all that is needed is to refer people back to that thread and ignore him completely.
More to this I believe.Two or three in one vehicle local thugs, I agree, but two vehicles and six intruders, hard to say.Mexican Mafia collecting a debt??? Lots of under the table lone sharking does go on down here.
I suspect they're probably already affiliated with them.
We'll be reading about kidnapped businessmen and / or their wives and children in the future.
You might think so, but it they're so smart and well organized, why did they hit two dry holes? I doubt they got more than a couple hundred dollars and are now wanted for B&E, impersonating an officer, ADW, kidnapping, armed robbery, and more. They appear to be moronic amateurs to me.
Call the demorats. Some more disenfranchised voters. Get them registered.

I would love a video of that that raid. It would look like a raid on a house of mirrors. :)
And the vehicle descriptions are totaly different.
